Cyprus Internet Directory [ Anorthosis dominate title race with win over Salamina ]

Anorthosis dominate title race with win over Salamina

IN the penultimate day of the first part of the season, Anorthosis extended their lead in the table by 11 points.

This means that they need only ten points over the next seven games to be crowned champions.

In the local derby between the two Famagusta teams, Anorthosis smashed five goals past Nea Salamina, with Lucas Sosin scoring a brace.

The Reds are now the hot favourites to be automatically relegated next weekend, along with Olympiakos who have already gone down.

The biggest game of the weekend was Cyprus’ very own ‘el clasico’ between Omonia and APOEL, which saw the Greens scrape a 2-1 victory.

Omonia took the lead after a corner which saw striker Cafu score from close range after being left unmarked in the area.

However, APOEL managed to equalise against the flow of the game, when Nenad Mirosavljevi? cooly slotted the ball past the Omonia keeper.

The final score of 2-1 was formed by a Demetris Maris goal after a cleverly-taken set piece which caught the APOEL defence unawares.

Omonia also missed a penalty earlier on after it was saved by keeper Jane Nikolovski, whereas APOEL should have had a penalty awarded to them in injury time when Constantinos Markides was clumsily fouled by Edgar Marselinho.

Other games saw AEK Larnaca and Enosis Neon Paralimniou (ENP) reignite their bids for an entry into the top four.

AEK beat Alki at the local derby by 2-0, while ENP thrashed sorry AEL at Tsirio by 4-1.

Alki’s defeat was overshadowed by manager Christakis Kassianos’ post-match conference where he hinted at his possible resignation.

Although safe from relegation, AEL face a tough last group fight next month when they will clash six times with their three respective group teams (Aris and Alki will definitely be there, but the third team remains a mystery).

‘Too little, too late’, sums up Ethnikos’ performance this season as concerns any aims the team may have had to break into the top four.

Their 2-1 home victory against relegated Olympiakos added to a spectacular second round performance which, however, has been tempered by a bad run in the first round and an inability to draw games which they could not win.

Few would have predicted an easy 3-1 win for the Greens at the Limassol derby between Aris and Apollon,.

Aris have thus regained control of their fate as concerns their relegation fight, and now have to beat Olympiakos away next weekend to avoid automatic relegation.

Apollon, a team which has been under the limelight both for the right and wrong reasons throughout this season, did not put up a fight.

Fans chanted “You’ve Sold Out” during the game, while yesterday the team’s President Frixos Savvides publicly stated that he, “has had enough of pampering the players.”

Apollon must now beat Omonia at Tsirio next weekend to ensure a top four finish.
A four-goal thriller at Makario stadium between Doxa and APOP was unfortunately watched by less than 50 fans.

The game ended with a 2-2 after much drama between two teams which have played attractive football this year despite the fact that they had been newly-promoted.

Doxa will probably be in the last group for the final stage of the season, while APOP will make it into the top four if they win their next game and Apollon does not beat Omonia.

In the meantime, the Cyprus Football Association has decided that there will be a €20 ceiling for the season’s playoff tickets.

The decision specifies that, “it is ultimately the home team which will decide the price, but this cannot exceed €20.

It also asserts that, “in no case will the CFA accept any additional charges levied by the teams on ticket prices.”
